Back to Wallowing in Self-Pity

Wednesday, February 05, 2014      5 comments

I was so happy last week that I'd finally kicked that cold. Went for a 6.5K run on Saturday. That may have been too much, and it probably didn't help that I ended up driving 500 miles this weekend instead of doing some easy activity to help my m... Read more

Goodbye, Old Friend

Friday, January 31, 2014      2 comments

From the start, I want the reader to know I am mourning the loss of a trusted piece of equipment. No living creature has come to a tragic end. I've had a Cateye Astrale 8 for what seems like forever. It replaced another Cateye cyclecomputer... Read more

Back in the saddle

Monday, January 27, 2014      5 comments

I went for a ride this afternoon. It's been months since I've ridden anything other than a spin bike. It was just below freezing, which was another reason not to over-do it. A few weeks ago, I had my bike fit to me. It's been more than a d... Read more

I'm Less Crabby Now

Friday, January 24, 2014      6 comments

I made it half-way through a Group Ride class last night. I started feeling light-headed, so I pedaled easily until my heart rate got back to normal and then called it a night. I'm glad I tried. I plan to go to the gym tonight for a swim, and I'... Read more

Extended Whine

Wednesday, January 22, 2014      2 comments

I'm so tired. My coughing kicks in when I lie down. I'm a side sleeper, and I'm resorting to sleeping on my back with my head propped up on pillows. It's not the same. I keep having this delusion I'm going to work out. I even put my gym ba... Read more

Rumors of My Recovery Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Sunday, January 19, 2014      4 comments

I felt great Thursday evening. But when I went to bed, I started coughing. I couldn't sleep, and that really derailed my recovery. I thought I'd be going for a walk on Saturday. I did some work in the garage, did some laundry, and then spent the... Read more

I'm Better Now

Thursday, January 16, 2014      0 comments

I left work at noon today, but I have yet to get in a nap. Since it's already 8:30, there isn't going to a nap. I haven't taken any drugs since late morning, so I guess I'm doing a lot better. I'm a lot less whiny, too. Read more

Humans make plans, and the gods laugh

Wednesday, January 15, 2014      6 comments

I'm still sick. I went to work this morning just to keep from getting too far behind, and then I went home. I finally got the cat off my lap, so I can type. I want to sleep, but I'll do that later. Swam Friday afternoon. I did twelve laps:... Read more

Unamusing Musings

Wednesday, January 08, 2014      2 comments

My goal is to eat about 2000 calories a day. That sounds like a lot, but it's both very do-able and low enough to permit me to lose weight. I used's calorie calculator. I put in both my desired weight (150) and a weight at which I wou... Read more

It won't be freezing, but ...

Dang it, I missed out on pie

Monday, January 06, 2014      4 comments

I'm having a fasting blood draw done tomorrow morning. It's already 8:20 p.m., which means no more food. And I was gonna have some pumpkin pie. Darn it! I went to a Group Step class this evening. I didn't like it. I disliked it enough to no... Read more

It's only 500 calories - easy peasy!

Thursday, January 02, 2014      4 comments

I hiked Badger Mountain by myself yesterday. The Hubs hemmed and hawed, and finally admitted he didn't want to go. He's become quite the housecat, and it was cold yesterday. I can't blame him, but I was disappointed. I was hopeful we were starti... Read more

A Letter to 2014

Wednesday, January 01, 2014      5 comments

Dear 2014: We've only just been introduced, but I am optimistic. I am hopeful that we have good times ahead of us. But please understand if I seem a little reserved. 2013 started off great. We had some wonderful times that I treasure. But 2... Read more

Keepin' at it

Friday, December 27, 2013      7 comments

The holidays have wreaked havoc with my gym schedule. My gym is locally owned, as opposed to being owned by some soulless corporate overlord. And, as is often the case with small locally-owned businesses, they treat their employees well. There w... Read more

Maybe next week will be better

Saturday, December 21, 2013      6 comments

Although I had Monday & Tuesday off, I didn't go to the gym. I reorganized the garage. That was good work, but it wasn't a workout. I went to Group Kick Wednesday night, and Group Ride Thursday. Eric was the instructor for the Group Ride. ... Read more
